Permanent Recruitment

Hire Right. First Time.

AWF offers specialist, permanent recruitment services, delivered by experienced and professional recruiters.

We know NZ business because we are a NZ business. We pride ourselves on being a large part of what keeps New Zealand working.  Your business is our business. We take time to understand your business and we take a detailed job briefing in order to understand the role you are looking to fill, your business needs and how we can help you.

Our recommendation is that you choose to work with us on an exclusive basis for your permanent recruitment needs. We’ve found that the best results and the most positive experiences occur when we can take ownership of your vacancy and the outcome. Exclusivity means a saving in time and money. You deal with one experienced recruiter, protecting your brand in the marketplace to generate the best outcome.

Results focus

Our goal is to find the right person for your vacant position and our experienced Recruitment Consultants won’t be satisfied until that goal is achieved.  We pride ourselves on being able to fill the vacancy you have using developed sourcing strategies coupled with a robust recruitment process designed to identify talent that fits the skill set and personality profile of the role you have.

Hire right, the first time

We understand the time, productivity and reputation costs that come with making the wrong hire, not to mention the negative impact on morale and business culture. The financial burden is significant too - with credible calculations estimating the cost of poor recruitment outcome at 1.5 times the salary of the role. Don’t just fill the gap, partner with us to source talent for your business, reduce the risk and likelihood of these challenges, and enjoy the positive benefits of making the right hire.  We guarantee our service!

Originally from Whangarei, Lara made the move to the City of Sails to complete her BSc in Psychology. Like many students she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do at the end of her study but had her light bulb moment when she undertook a recruitment paper. Upon completing her degree Lara headed to the job boards looking for an opportunity to get into recruitment. It wasn’t long till she secured a role focusing on permanent placement recruitment within the freight and logistics sector. After 20 months in this space, Lara was excited to make the jump to AWF where she is widening her scope and in addition to freight and logistics she also specialises in the education sector.
